Since it is Akhil Akkineni’s first movie and raised humongous expectations among audiences and the trade circles, everyone was hoping to see a cracker of entertainment. Or even a regular but decent entertainer like Vinayak’s earlier movie Alludu Seenu. Akhil seemed a Deepavali bomb to explode in the box-office. But, what we get to see is totally different.
Though the concept of Jua stone is something novel, rest of the drama, the romantic track, the comedy scenes have treaded the path of formula.
Like what Puri Jagannadh did while launching Ram Charan in Chirutha, Vinayak has done similar with Akhil by showing Akhil’s strengths to the core than telling a gripping entertainer.
Vinayak has succeeded in launching Akhil as a star with high dance and fight skills. Thanks to Vinayak, we now know what Akhil can do in his future films but the movie doesn’t work at all with narration goes completely aimless.
The first half of the movie has focused on Akhil’s dances and establishing romance between Akhil and Sayesha and ends with ineffective bang. Second half has some entertainment though but it is not effective either.
Enough attention has not been put on the story and screenplay as the plot has many loopholes and screenplay doesn’t grab the audiences’ interest. We are only glued to the seats when songs appear. Rest of the movie is lethargic and pointless. Is it really directed by V V Vinayak we get doubt sometimes. This is weakest film in his entire career.
Some of the dialogues by Kona are good but they are not that effective overall. Senior director Vinayak who is normally good at making entertaining movies has gone completely wrong this time. His handling of the African episodes is pretty bad to say the least.
All in all, Akhil is show reel movie of Akhil’s dancing skills. Other than that it offers only boredom, nothing else.
Bottomline: Dance Baby Dance
